the only reason this got a 7 insrtead of a 1 was if you min maxed, the first 3 chapters were kinda cool. but the main reason was, it had alot of potential, they wasted. one of witch was the class level system that all units shared levels.
why bother giving us levels if your going to boost the ememys equaly to you. the first 3 chapters of the game were fun because you could win ezaly and progress. untill random(semingly) ultra boost's to the enemys would happen making all the levels you aquired mean nothing.
and the story had to much reading and was boring and to make madders worse they had an entire section were you could learn even more over long boring deatails of stuff nowon cares about
also complicated item makers are annoying stop ruining games with them. in short tactic games are fun but complicated level grinding is not. at the very least make an ez mode so we can see cool moves and story line and avoid the tedious bordom.
I enjoyed this title thoroughly until the point where I had to fight my ally-turned-enemy partway through the game, where I had such difficulty doing any damage I just got frustrated enough to send it back after losing 5+ times in rapid succession. I'm not that good at the strategy turn-based battles, but if you are then I'm sure you'll enjoy Tactics Ogre.
I really wish I had figured out how to beat that guy, because this was a game I found to be really fun up until that point. The storyline is fun and entertaining, I liked being able to control the choices in dialog that gave way to how the story would play out. If you're good at strategy games, I suggest you rent this one and buy it if you can, it is a really good title.
I rated it a 7, but would have gone higher if I could have figured out how to beat that nemesis of the main character! Give it a shot, you'll have fun playing I am sure!
